### Description

This math mystery is a fun way for 3rd graders to solve word problems in a unique way. Kids start reading at the beginning of the book, solve the problems, and go where the book tells them to go! A wrong answer will send them to a 'stopper' that will tell them to go back to where they were working, and TRY AGAIN!

This mystery includes these skills:

*elapsed time to the 5 minutes

*reading a bar graph and figuring information from it

*add 3 2-digit numbers

*Counting and adding money

*simple fraction addition

*converting measures (feet to yards and seconds to minutes)

*shapes

*measurement to 1/2 inch

*making change

There are a total of 10 word problems included in this story. Some of them are multi-step problems as well.

I use these mysteries at my math stations during guided math. I am sure your kids will love this Halloween themed math mystery book as much as mine do! What the next mystery will bring?
